Whatever your views about TripAdvisor, it is the world’s largest travel site and millions of people use it when planning a trip. The site has just announced its 2017 Travelers’ Choice Awards and several hotels and bed-and-breakfast establishments on Mallorca have been named in the Best of 2017 lists for Spain.
Spain’s Top 25 B&Bs
Of the top 25 bed and breakfast places in Spain, only two are on Mallorca. I was delighted to see that one of those two is Finca Son Jorbo, Porreres, where we had a really enjoyable stay last year; read about it here. English hosts Annie and Martin are the most welcoming people and I’m only surprised that they aren’t higher up in the ranking than number 10. But then, the list does cover the whole of Spain.
The only other B&B on Mallorca to win a place on the list is Finca Hotel Albellons Parc Natural, in the hamlet of Binibona, at number 24 out of 25. I’ve never stayed, so can’t give a view on this one.
Spain’s Top 25 Small Hotels
Eight of the top 25 small hotels in Spain are on Mallorca. Top of the list is the 7-room Hotel Salvia in Sóller, where I have eaten (the food is superb), but not stayed.
The others are as follows:
6/25 Finca Hotel Son Palou, Orient
7/25 Petit Hotel Son Arnau, Selva. Alex and Susan are your welcoming hosts here and you can read here about our stay.
10/25 Art Hotel, Palma. I’ve toured this beautiful antiques-and-art-stuffed boutique hotel but not stayed here. It’s on the list …
11/25 Ca’s Curial, Sóller
16/25 Posada Terra Santa, Palma
20/25 Sa Torre de Santa Eugenia, Santa Eugènia
25/25 Finca Ca’s Sant, Sóller
Of course, TripAdvisor is only one site offering rankings based on travellers’ reviews. Booking.com has just announced its Guest Review Awards 2016 and Hotel Can Mostatxins in the walled town of Alcúdia maintained a 9.8/10 guest score over the past twelve months – for a second year.
So, where would you like to stay on Mallorca this year? I have quite a list …
